I finally put my hands on a Mandarin with English subtitles of Scorching sun, fierce wind, wild fire and I watched it today.
I had watched a French language version around 10 years ago, and all what I remembered was Lo Lieh disguised as Violet and of course, Angela Mao robbing the robbers, and, maybe because of the French dialogues (I should revisit this version), at that time, it looked more like a comedy with good fights for me, and there were some points of the plot that weren't very clear.
Watching it in its original language made me realize what a superb movie it is !! Very good plot and superb fights !
Nobody steals the show : Angela Mao has good fights, Hilda Liu has good fights, Tien Peng, Lung Fong, Tan Tao Liang and Lo Lieh also share their parts of the fights, and Chang Yi is perfect in his villain's role !
I recommend this movie to those who haven't watched it as yet !!
